Dawn of War 2 £22.99 (preorder) @Shopto.net

This is actually the second cheapest I could find it. It was £21.90 at pure-games.co.uk (http://pure-games.co.uk/products/Dawn_of_War_II_PC_16-382-0.html) but as I had never heard of this company I decided to post the Shopto deal. If you fancy a punt on the other go for it but for a quid more you can stick with the tried and trusted Shopto. Yp to you I guess.

If you've played any of the previous games in this series then you'll no doubt be looking forward to this. At this price it seems well worth it.

Developed by award winning Relic Entertainment, Dawn of War II ushers in a new chapter in the acclaimed RTS series - taking players to the brutal frontlines of war to lead an elite strike force on a mission to save the galaxy.

Brutal Frontline Action & Tactics: Get straight into the action and experience intense melee and devastating ranged combat. Use vicious melee sync-kills to obliterate your enemies. Outsmart your opponents using dynamic and destructible environments to suppress, flank and destroy your foes.

Non-Linear Single Player Campaign: Command an elite strike force, choosing from a variety of playable races and play through that race's unique storyline, developing the skills and abilities of your squads and commander as you progress through the game.

Co-Op Multiplayer: Play through the entire single-player campaign cooperatively with a friend, at any point in the game, anytime.

Next Generation RTS Engine: Utilising Relic's proprietary Essence Engine 2.0 to deliver cinematic visuals, detailed graphics and special effects.

A bit more information for those who might want it. There's the sytem requirements below as I know it can be a concern buying a game on PC and being unsure if it will actually run it or not. Good news with this is for a Brand new game the specs are surprisingly low.

Minimum Requirements

* Windows XP SP2 or Windows Vista SP1
* P4 3.2 GHz (single core) or any Dual Core processor
* 1 GB RAM (XP), 1.5 GB RAM (Vista)
* A 128MB Video Card (Shader Model 3) - Nvidia GeForce 6600 GT / ATI X1600, or equivalent
* 5.5 GB of Hard Drive space

Recommended

* Windows XP SP2 or Windows Vista SP1
* AMD Athlon 64x2 4400+ or any Intel Core 2 Duo
* 2 GB RAM (XP and Vista)
* A 256MB Video Card (Shader Model 3) - Nvidia GeForce 7800 GT / ATI X1900, or equivalent
* 5.5 GB of Hard Drive space

Also dredged up some news about a beta test they're running. So you could reserve a copy now, get into the beta and then cancel your order if you don't like the look of the game.

* The beta will be hosted via Steam and offered exclusively to Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - Soulstorm owners on January 21, followed by a worldwide public release on January 28.

* The beta will feature all four playable races, five multiplayer maps, and Microsoft's Games for Windows - Live TrueSkill Matchmaking.

Amazon and Play are indeed offering 'extras', which involves some aesthetic upgrades for a charatcer in the game as well as an extra paint scheme for the Space Marines in multiplayer. These are £24.99 if any one wants them.

is it worth an extra £2/3 for these 'special edition' packages? They may look very nice up close but during a game are you really paying that much attention to such details? Do they confer any special abilities in-game?

Also, we have special tactical and assault marines, what about the devastators? Anyone doing specials on them?

Thats a good question and one that was going through my head when I posted this deal. If I had posted the other deals then I imagine people would have pointed out that it was cheaper at Shopto. As far as i'm concerned the extra features are purely aesthetic and it was for that reason I posted the shopto deal.

If they do confer special abilities in game I wouldn't imagine they would be massively significant as you will be able to use them right from the start and consequently this would bring serious imbalance into the game as a whole. In all honesty though I don't know for sure what these features do so pick the one that suits you the best.:thumbsup:

Thanks Chrome72 for finding out the other special kits. I actually love devastators and actually already preordered the one from GAME, it may be priced at £24.99 but we have GAME reward cards and quidco is at 9% for software!!! so overall my GAME price would be closer to £21.50 instead!

SO if they all do special kits for whatever box you buy it would simply boil down to what your playing style is! Big guns for Kwok!!! :p:p:p

I've been looking around to try and find out what the extra kits actually do. You'd have thought that at least one website on the internet would have an answer, but no, none of them seem to be offering even a little bit of information.

For anyone looking for extra's however there is apparently another set available if you get the game via a download from THQ. In this set you get new pieces of equipment like the others but also a multiplayer map. Not sure how this works as I've never downloaded a game before.
